Report: Syria Withdraws Possible US Targets

A report in Al Arabiya news claims that the government of Syria has withdrawn forces from areas they assume will be targeted by foreigners. The report comes as the United States government debates whether or not to join with other concerned countries to intervene in the Syrian civil war that has left thousands dead.

Al Arabiya also reported that the commander of the Free Syrian Army and other rebel leaders have so far not received any information about the timing of any potential US airstrike. The Syrian rebels released numerous images from an alleged chemical weapons attack they say was perpetrated by the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
